Battered Housewife Sends Hubby To Prison

Mrs Harriet Ariwoyo
A battered housewife, Mrs Harriet Obiageri Ariwoyo, a mother of five, has dragged her husband, Prince Ariwoyo, to a Lagos court where he was remanded at Kirikiri Prison Apapa, for allegedly battering and threatening to kill his wife.

Prince, 45, allegedly turned his wife into a punching bag at any slightest provocation, a situation witnessed by neighbours at their Apata street Akesan, outskirt of Lagos resident. He was eventually arrested by the police at Igando station and locked up.

The battered woman claims that their 18- year old peaceful marriage suddenly became sour after she told Prince that she has had enough of child bearing since God has blessed them with daughters. They had no sons. Although Prince pretended to agree with her decision, he later turned violent and turned Harriet into a punching bag.


On the day the incident happened, Prince was alleged to have beaten Harriet mercilessly and injured her.
She went to Igando Police Station and reported the assault. When Prince was invited to the station, he threatened that he will kill Harriet in the presence of the police officers.

He was charged to Ejigbo magistrat’s court for threatening to kill his wife. When the matter came up at the court, he pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs Sherry O. Solebo granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was, however, remanded in Kirikiri prison, Apapa, Lagos because none of his relations came to bail him.

Battered can get justice in Nigeria.

    Thumbs up to her for standing up for herself. However we as Nigerians still have a long way to go in regards to justice for domestic violence victims.

    Nigerian women are finally taking this seriously...no one wants to be murdered for the sake of a marriage. Let the psycho go to jail!

    Linda your blog should have a 'like' button so that we can like your posts. I'm glad she got her justice. Thank God it's no longer business as usual when it comes to DV justice. I hope other judges take a cue too

    "He was, however, remanded in Kirikiri prison, Apapa, Lagos because none of his relations came to bail him." Good for this man!! It will be a lesson to other men that they must consider the financial consequences as well before using their fists on any women, not just their wives! Good for Mrs Ariwoyo too- I am behind you all the way because your husband is a cowardly asshole. Why do men think that without sons, they are worthless?
